Year 8 Mekong+ Design Competition

12 March 2015

Year 8 have recently been taking part in an exciting new design competition! In collaboration with

Mekong +

all of our Year 8 students were asked to come up with a design for a cushion, tote bag or drawstring bag.

Having had only a few weeks to come up with a final design, the students have chosen a product for their design and went about researching what the Lunar New Year and especially the Year of the Goat meant to them. In class time they made preparatory studies and have now submitted their completed designs for judging.


The teachers of the Art Department have selected the best of the Year and handed them over to the judging panel. This Tuesday, the independent teaching panel of Mr Ball and Ms Horne were joined by Hoi Tran (Sales & Marketing Manager) & Gam Pham (Designer) from

Mekong +

and accompanied by Phong Lai (Marketing Adviser) and myself, they started the difficult process of deciding the top three designs. The media used by students varied, as did the subject of the designs but the standard was high.

As the winning design will actually be produced and sold in

Mekong +

shops, considerations such as ease of production, aesthetic appeal and originality were all taken into account. The shortlisted designs were soon reduced to just ten pieces – with various media used and differing subjects of design it was even trickier deciding the best three and finally their ranking.

An exhibition of all the short-listed designs will be run for the next two weeks in the Mekong Quilts store at 68, Le Loi from 17:00 on Thursday 12


March – all Year 8 students, parents and teachers are welcome although space and therefore numbers will be limited.  

A presentation and unveiling of the prize winning designs will start at 17:30 and refreshments will be available. The final winning designs will feature in BISbuzz.
